La Liga president Javier Tebas has confirmed that the league will continue to appeal the registration of Barcelona’s midfield sensation, Gavi. The 18-year-old’s new contract was not registered with La Liga due to the club’s Financial Fair Play issues. Despite Barça filing a court case, La Liga continued to oppose the registration of the player.
In a recent press conference,
Javier Tebas said, “We will continue to try to appeal Gavi’s registration. We will go to court to try to appeal it. We are against Gavi’s registration.”
He further added that Gavi is registered, but it’s still in the precautionary measure, and they have a few days left to oppose it. If their opposition is upheld, he would play but with the previous record.
Tebas also explained what Barcelona needs to do to make the registration airtight.
Javier Tebas explained:”They have to show a series of numbers and cash, and if they do that, the registration would be no problem. The losses must be less than what they have. It doesn’t mean he can’t be registered. Barcelona knows what they have to do.”
Barcelona filed a court case against the league in January to register the player. The court ruling came out in favour of the club, forcing La Liga to file Gavi as part of the senior team. The midfielder even received the iconic No. 6 jersey. However, La Liga has now appealed the decision.
Gavi has been a revelation for Barcelona this season, with his performances earning him plaudits from all around the footballing world. The midfielder has made 23 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals and providing two assists.
